Izzard/Saberi births

William George Izzard m Daisy Maud Saberi in 1933, Edmonton reg district.

Looking on freebmd for children there are 2, reg in the Edmonton reg district during 1934/5 with the same name.

One was reg in 1st Quarter, the other 2nd Quarter.

There seems to be only the one Izzard/Saberi marriage.

Can anyone suggest what's going on?

Name(s) not given as they may still be living,

Only 1 child showing on 1939 register before the 1938 birth of Alan, so presumably one or other of the 1935 birth registrations

Izzard household

Given that DOB showing on the death record, she should by rights be the March 1935 registration.

Any chance any eager parent registered in March and then the other registered late having not asked if it had been done ??

Wonder if you rang GRO they might look for you without having to purchase if it were possible a mistake had been made along the way????

Thanks Greyghost. That's really helpful.

Following your train of thought, it's possible that she was re-registered, perhaps to correct a detail or spelling. It would be great if GRO would have a free peek, although I'm not pushing my luck! :-D

I looked at the 2 images, and there doesn't seem to be any remark attached to either one.

Maybe you're going to have buy both certificates or pdf to find out.

Odd, isn’t it? I might just do that!

Maybe it was just a matter of forgetfulness :-D
